Brief introduction to the report:
The Australian Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organisation (CSIRO) is the pre-eminent public research agency of the Australian Government and recognised as global top 10 applied research agency. CSIRO brings significant experience in working in large multi-disciplinary water assessment and planning projects both within Australia and internationally (e.g. China, India, Myanmar, Papua New Guinea, and Peru).
This report presents an overview of CSIRO’s profile and China engagement, followed by vignettes of CSIRO’s Land and Water latest research and development in integrated water management including: (i) streamflow forecasting for planning and management, (ii) scenario assessment for the development of large irrigation schemes in northern Australia, and (iii) groundwater depletion and its causes in one of the world food bowls.
